    Spinnaker Brass is a brand new brass band setting up in Fareham, Hampshire. We rehearse 3 mins from J11 on the M27 on Tuesday evenings and in order to complete our line-up are looking for a tenor horn, front and back row cornet, baritone and euphonium of approx grade 5 standard or above, although all interested players are welcome to apply. Ideally you will have your own instrument, although there may be the possibility of borrowing one. Our first rehearsal is on 31 Jul with an inaugural concert in September. We aim to play as a full band or in smaller (5 or 10 piece) groups, depending on the event, and are aiming at diverse gigs from concerts, open days and fetes to weddings and formal dinners as well as some limited contesting. If you are interested in joining this exciting new band, call our Band Manager, Andy McPherson on 023 9251 0138.

    Since advertising on The mouthpiece 'Spinnaker' has now filled its horn vacancy and all horn, trombone and Bass sections are now complete. However, we could still do with a few cornets and one each of baritone and euphonium. We would also welcome other players that want to be part of an ambitious band that intends to make a name for itself.
    Please pm me or contact our band manager Andy McPherson on 07748454454 or 02392510138

    Spinnaker brass is continuing to strengthen its line up and has now has 23 players who have committed to the band. However, we are still looking to strengthen further and could do with a back row cornet, baritone, obviously percussion (which band doesn’t !) and maybe another trombonist. Although we obviously would welcome other players as well. If you’re interested in belonging to a band that is interested in just playing without the political stuff please contact our Band Manager Andy McPherson on 07748 454454 or 023 9251 0138 or our MD Derek Jones on 07825 226316.

    Spinnaker brass- The big push for 2008

    Spinnaker brass has now been active for only a few months and has a nucleus of 25 players. Considering the band is still in its infancy it makes a pretty good noise, probably because several of it's players have played at championship and 1st section level as well as other sections.
    However, due to relocation we now need a top quality principal cornet as well as another front or back row cornet, Bb bass and a tuned percussionist, although we would also be happy to see other players who want to be part of the vision Spinnaker has for itself. Pls pm or call me on 07825226316 or our band manager Andy McPherson on 07748454454 if being part of Spinnaker's exciting future appeals to you.

    Spinnaker Brass is now looking to recruit in a few areas in order to strengthen its line up.
    Because many of our band are prepared to move to other instruments/positions most players can be accomodated. In its short time 'Spinnaker' has increased its membership from a dozen to over twenty but now wishes to increase this further.
    If you wish to be part of the challenge of developing a band in its infancy to one that becomes a major force on the south coast please contact me on 07825226316 or band manager Andy McPherson on 07748454454

    Spinnaker Brass need a new principal cornet +....

    Due to relocation, Spinnaker Brass need a new principal cornet with immediate effect. In addition we are also looking to recruit other cornet players and a Bb bass player, although we would welcome enquiries from other players. The band put in a good showing at its debut at the regionals at Torquay and is looking to build on this in the immediate future including, we hope, Pontins at Prestatyn in October. If you are interested please contact our secretary Mark Crawshaw on 07800763286, or visit our website www.spinnakerbrass.org.uk where further contact details can be found.

    Cornet and bass players wanted in Fareham, Hampshire

    Spinnaker Brass in Fareham, Hampshire, is looking to fill just a few seats now which, since the band is still less than a year old, is fantastic. We have a raft of plans for the future including, hopefully, participation in Pontins, Prestatyn, and, longer term, a tour to possibly Germany or France. If you're a cornet or bass player (though other players are welcome) and are looking for an exciting future but without the usual band politics, come and visit us on one of our Tuesday evening rehearsals. Full details, including some recordings of the band, are on our website - www.Spinnakerbrass.org.uk or contact Mark Crawshaw [band secretary] on 07800 763286 or Andy MacPherson [Band Chairman] on 07748 454454.

    Spinnaker Brass are really pleased to announce the signing of Virgilio Guerini as its new principal trombonist. Virgilio as has played for numerous well known conductors such as Riccardo Muti and been taught by teachers such as Roger Bobo and Joe Alessi. However, the positions of cornet and bass players are still needed to be filled as Spinnaker seeks to make the big push for success. Please feel free to contact us or check out our website which has all details.
